"A must-read. . . . If we all do our part, we can--through kindness--become the change that is desperately needed and that will transform countless lives."--from the foreword by Candace Payne, "Chewbacca Mom"

"I have had the opportunity to interact with Convoy of Hope up close and personal. Each time, I have come away deeply moved, inspired, changed, and motivated."--Dr. Henry Cloud, clinical psychologist, leadership expert, and author

"The authors take the 'random' out of acts of kindness to empower us toward an intentional kindness revolution."--Nicole Johnson, author, dramatist, and speaker

Endorsements

"Your Next 24 Hours is a must-read for people of all ages who want to be inspired to be kind. Being known for sharing joy with others has both humbled and honored me in ways that I could not imagine. As you read this book, you'll find yourself longing to focus on spreading more joy in the world. If we all do our part, we can--through kindness--become the change that is desperately needed and that will transform countless lives."

from the foreword by Candace Payne, "Chewbacca Mom"

"On several occasions, I have had the opportunity to interact with Convoy of Hope up close and personal. Each time, I have come away deeply moved, inspired, changed, and motivated to become more deeply involved in their work. I am so glad the authors have taken the time and effort to share with us lessons that remind us of the power of kindness and compassion. I hope this book helps inspire many, many people to reach out and serve others even more."

Dr. Henry Cloud, clinical psychologist, leadership expert, and author

"The authors are living representations of true kindness. Their kindness is shown through the remarkable work of Convoy of Hope. Through Convoy they feed children, empower women, train farmers in developing nations, and help with disaster relief around the world. Simply put, they are changing the lives of people wherever they go. Their greatest display of kindness, however, is shown in the way they treat every person they come in contact with in their day-to-day lives. We wholeheartedly endorse Your Next 24 Hours."

Kevin Jonas Sr., The Jonas Group

"This book reveals the secrets to a more rewarding life. Kindness comes from the condition of the heart. When a person chooses to live a life of kindness, they receive so much more than they give. Once you start reading this book, you won't be able to put it down."

Anne Beiler, founder of Auntie Anne's

"It's easy to love the lovable, be kind to the kind, and reciprocate to those who have first done something nice for us. Ours is a world built around the bold and the beautiful, the pretty and the eloquent. But what about those who are seemingly unlovable, shy, unnoticed, less fortunate? Such people are all around us, and we often take them for granted. But as Jesus modeled, perhaps we could lift up their spirits if--through kindness--we simply noticed them. Your Next 24 Hours encourages us to do just that! My wife, Kendi, and I encourage you to read this book and to use acts of kindness to uplift those around you."

Vance McDonald, tight end for the San Francisco 49ers

"If I hadn't read this book, my next 24 hours would look exactly like my last 24 hours. But thanks to the authors and the stories gleaned from their combined century of service, my next 1,440 minutes are exploding with possibilities. The authors take the 'random' out of acts of kindness to empower us toward an intentional kindness revolution."

Nicole Johnson, author, dramatist, and speaker

"We can't think of anyone more qualified to share about kindness. The authors reflect what it means to live and breathe abundant kindness and compassion. Their lives inspire us and others to do the same."

Curt and Nancy Richardson, founders of Otterbox

"We were raised to always be kind when given the opportunity. After reading Your Next 24 Hours, we were inspired to look for opportunities to show kindness daily."

Rick and Jan Britton, owners, Digital Monitoring Products

"After traveling to Tanzania and seeing first hand the work Convoy is doing, it is evident they have changed millions of lives for the better. From Convoy's soil scientists revolutionizing impoverished farmers' crops to the Women's Empowerment program enabling women to live self-sufficient lives--the authors have devoted their lives to wisely spreading compassion around the world."

Mike Tompkins, YouTube celebrity

"The authors have impacted millions around the world through the generosity and incredible work of Convoy of Hope. Now, in Your Next 24 Hours, you can jump into their story in depth, share their pain, struggles, and successes, and be inspired to make a difference wherever you live and lead. I believe wholeheartedly in the work of Convoy of Hope, and you should, and will, too after consuming the stories in this hope-filled book."

Brad Lomenick, former president of Catalyst and author of The Catalyst Leader and H3 Leadership
